131101 - North-West AstroFest 2013

Postby Matt Smith » Fri Nov 01, 2013 9:55 pm

BIMS members Martin Goff, Graham Ensor and Luther Jackson had a great time at the inaugural North West Astro Fest event last weekend. They put on a stunning display of meteorites and shared their enthusiasm for space rocks with countless visitors over the two days. Photo's will be available on Martin's website in due course.

They held a "guess the weight of the meteorite" competition and had over 300 entries. The actual weight was 5391g. The closest entry was 5436g, only 45g off and the winner was Emma Williams-Tully. Congratulations Emma (pictured below).
